Vendor Booth Ideas

Vendor booth ideas to help you design your display for craft shows. Plenty of original photos showcasing handmade clothing displays, food booths, and portable displays using pedestals.

by Lisa McGrimmon

As we near the busy holiday craft show season, your booth is probably mostly complete, but, if you want to add a little extra pizzazz, there's still time to do a few last minute spruce ups.

For those who have a few more finishing touches to add to their display, I have more than 20 pictures featuring vendor booth ideas, including 9 brand new food display photos.

It's actually astonishing to me that I've managed to pull together 9 photos of food booths. Somehow I never manage to get food booth photos - It might have something to do with the distraction provided by delicious samples.

For those who don't sell food, don't skip these photos. There's something to learn from these booths no matter what you sell.

You'll see a display that cleverly tells a story and sells an idea of a lifestyle as well as selling the products. You'll also see a smart and elegant way to use packaging to enhance your display.

I hope you find plenty of inspiration in these booths and they help you get your own display ready for upcoming Christmas craft shows.

Craft Booths Featuring Pedestals

The portable pedestal, in my opinion, is an under-rated display option. Pedestals aren't used as frequently as other types of display furniture, but they are a highly flexible alternative that allow you to arrange your booth in any number of ways. 

If you're wondering how to use display pedestals in your booth, here are several photos to get your ideas flowing.
